Astrophoto Friday: Horsehead Nebula

This week's astrophoto is of the Horsehead Nebula. The photo was taken by Milton Humason using the 200-inch Hale Telescope the night of February 7, 1951. Look here for a wider view that gives more of the context of the region as seen with Palomar's 48-inch Samuel Oschin Telescope.
